I dont know how many people are in the same boat, but I just leased my CX-50 and I was kind of on the fence between the CX-50, V60 CC leasing new or buying used. I think the CX-50 is all SUV unlike the V60 which is really a wagon. The proportions on the side view make it look like a baby CX-9 with similar lines IMO but it really drives much better. My wifes CX-9 is a hauler but the cockpit on this thing is just so much more engaging. 100 miles in an I couldnt be happier.
